Honors Program Projects
WRITING LITERACY PROJECT: In a special section of English
200 (Advanced Composition), NCC students in the Writing Literacy
Project work as writing mentors for "at risk" students in community
middle schools and high schools. Sponsored by the New York State
Department of Education's Liberty Partnership Program, Honors
students in this course travel to schools in Westbury, Roosevelt,
Oceanside and Long Beach, where they run small creative writing
groups in after-school programs.
ADOPT-A-CLASS: Each year, Honors students host a grade
school class and conduct various activities for them on the Nassau
Community College campus. For example, guest students may
participate in an Honors class in progress, visit the NCC weather
center, the computer center, attend a musical performed by Nassau's
Theatre Department and learn what it is like to go to college.
HONORS CONNECTION: The Honors Connection Program enables
bright, motivated high school juniors and seniors who meet
established criteria to participate in Nassau's Honors Program by
taking one or more classes at Nassau Community College.
